This is a successful, well balanced starter to a meal, or a flavoursome creamy hors d’oeuvre.
In French cuisine it is quite common to combine smoked salmon with fresh salmon to add more texture and depth to a terrine, but in this recipe I have used only smoked salmon.
Here we have a delicious dessert, covered in maple - cream syrup and topped with crumbled walnut shortbread biscuit. This is not an overly sweet cheesecake and is only as sweet as the amount of syrup you pour over the top when serving.
The ultimate comfort snack with the freshness of parsley and garlic spread on top after baking. This also has a surprise punch of chilli through the sweetness of the potato and goat cheese, an excellent snack or starter.
Here we have a rustic French style loaf of bread which is crispy on the outside and moist and cheesy on the inside. A great loaf to pull apart and enjoy with a meal. You could sprinkle extra grated cheese over the top and add a bit of wholegrain mustard to the mixture to give it another flavour. Here we have the base for a simple beer bread which can be enjoyed by all.
This classic French beef stew is full of rich flavours brought about by using a number of herbs which create a delicious meal.
For best results, refrigerate the beef with wine and herbs overnight.
This chilled dessert is very light and refreshing. It can be enjoyed by using any fruit, but in this recipe I used mango as the dominant fruit.
